Title: The Shuttered Houses of Paris
Description: New York, Grove Press. 1986, First Thus. (ISBN: 0394622154) Paperback, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Paris, at the turn of the century, was the most voluptuous city of its time, and perhaps all time. From the Latin Quarter to the flagellants of the Rue Clause, the Edwardian author of this delightful memoir takes the reader on a grand tour of the brothels of fin de siecle Paris. He tells us what the pretty beauties who dwell in the convents of concupiscence are like; how they conduct themselves in the reception rooms, and in their tapestried bedchambers; what they say and do; how they dress and undress; the vices and exigencies of their admirers, all is revealed. This is a facsimile of the original 1906 edition published by Charles Carrington. New.
